Fresh Lettuce For 2 Weeks!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I discovered this by accident. I put a head of lettuce in a metal bowl in the fridge and added a few ice cubes. The lettuce didn't turn brown for days! I just empty the water and put fresh ice cubes in as I use my lettuce. I cover the bowl with saran wrap also.

    When I buy the bagged lettuces, I cut a slit in the top of the bag as soon as I get home. The lettuce will stay edible for at least a week.
